On the Supreme Court

There's really almost no point in blogging when I can just quote Leonard Pitts, Jr.

O'Connor was named to the court by conservative icon Ronald Reagan. She herself is usually described as a moderate conservative, a term that has grown oxymoronic over the years.

But even putting that aside, I question the word "moderate," implying as it does a lack of passion or conviction. I prefer to regard O'Connor as a conservative with an independent mind.

And I'd argue that we could use a few more independent minds of whatever ideology.

From Pitts's word processor to President Bush's brain, please.
